Wrongful Termination

Most people are employed at will, meaning the employer can terminate the employment at any time. However, employers may not fire a worker for reasons that are illegal. There are a number of federal and state laws that protect workers. These include Title VII of the Federal Civil Rights Act, the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, and many others. The wrongful job termination lawyers of Montgomery, Chapin & Fetten, P.C. will protect your rights and help you seek justice if you have been unfairly terminated for any of the following reasons:

  • Reporting discrimination based on race, ethnic origin, nationality, color, or religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, or pregnancy
  • Retaliation for having filed a Workers’ Compensation claim.
  • Reporting sexual harassment that you were a victim of or that you witnessed.
  • FMLA retaliation (maternity/paternity leave or family medical leave)
  • “Whistleblowing” Retaliation for refusing to participate in illegal behavior or threatening to report it.
